Tennis players are a competitive bunch and at the Genesee Volley Tennis & Croquet Club we're no different. And if you think tennis players are competitive, you should meet croquet players!

We offer a whole range of competitive leagues, round-robin events and club tournaments in both sports. Here are a few:

Doubles Leagues

The club offers Doubles leagues throughout the season in both tennis and croquet.  Tennis matches are generally scheduled at 8am, Noon and 6 pm. Croquet is played every weekday afternoon at 3 pm or 4 pm and sometimes both!

Players typically play one or more doubles match per week. Matchings are sent out by e-mail every week based on your availability and ability.

Club Championships

The club holds Club Championships every year in both Tennis and Croquet, usually in both SIngles and a variety of Doubles formats.

The first Genesee Valley Club Championships were held in 2009. Winners were Mel Bauman in Men's Singles, Heather Burke in Women's Singles, Heather Burke and Dennis Canary in Mixed Doubles and Mel Bauman and Rock Castor in Open Doubles.

In 2010 Dave Missel pulled a "hat trick" by winning the Mens Singles, the Open Doubles (with partner Gregg Hartvigsen) and the Mixed Doubles (with wife Carole!)

Club Tennis Championships are generally held in August with the finals of the Open Doubles held before the Club Picnic on the last weekend of the month.
